???? 1000 High Wall of Lothric Greirat's Ashes
Bandit's Knife


Greirat of the Undead Settlement is a NPC in Dark Souls 3. Greirat will occasionally ask if he can go and "steal" items for you that he will then sell

Information

Location

  • Initially locked in a cell, below the Tower on the Wall bonfire in High Wall of Lothric. You can find the Cell Key inside of the workshop below the Pus of Man which erupts on the rooftop. After heading down the ladder and defeating the Lothric Knight, follow the stairs at the end of the hall down to the base floor. Several Starved Hounds and Hollow Soldiers will be patrolling the area. The key is located at the back wall, down a flight of stairs which leads to a Starved Hound and eventual dead end.
  • After accepting his request he appears at the Firelink Shrine as a vendor, asking you to remember about his request when talked to.
  • You can find Loretta's Bone past the Undead Settlement bonfire. It is on a corpse hanging from the balcony of the first house the player will enter, overlooking a congregation in front of a burning tree.
  • After delivering Loretta's Bone, he will tell the player to keep the ring, but other than that will not react. Once the world is reset, however, he will be in a curled up position and will give the player the Curl Up gesture, while remaining unresponsive. Once the player leaves and enters Firelink Shrine once more, he will ask for permission to scavenge for more items. He will return following the next boss kill and can return as early as after Curse-Rotted Greatwood.

Greirat's Questline

Summary :

  1. Rescuing Greirat
  2. Delivering Loretta's Bone
  3. Greirat's first outing
  4. Greirat's second outing (to Irithyll, where he will die unless his rescue by either Patches or Siegward is ensured)
  5. Greirat's third outing (to Lothric Castle, where he will die regardless of the player's actions)

1. Rescuing Greirat :

  1. From the High Wall of Lothric's Tower on the Wall bonfire, head down to the dark room with the broken floor and exit through the door on the right. Cross the rooftops where you encounter the Pus of Man, climb down the ladder on the right, and enter the building below.
  2. After dealing with the spear-wielding Lothric Knight, head all the way down to a room guarded by dogs and Great Axe wielding hollows.  Behind black powder barrels is a semi-hidden staircase where you can find the key to Greirat's cell.
  3. From the Tower on the Wall bonfire, head down one floor, and follow the hallway that is inside the tower.  You will eventually run into Greirat's cell.
  4. Unlock the cell and speak to Greirat. Accept his help.

2. Helping Greirat with Loretta :

  1. Talk to Greirat in Firelink Shrine, and he will speak to you about Loretta.
  2. From the Undead Settlement Bonfire, second after the Vordt of the Boreal Valley boss fight, you will immediately find a building that is dark inside.
  3. On the balcony, you will see a a corpse with loot on it.  Attack it to make it fall, and you will find Loretta's bone.
  4. Give Greirat Loretta's bone.

3. Greirat's First Outing :

You must visit the Undead Settlement after sending Greirat on his first mission to trigger him to leave the Firelink Shrine for the first time. If you are having trouble getting Greirat to leave Firelink, try warping to the Dilapitated Bridge bonfire, cross the bridge and make your way through the ruins to the Road of Sacrifices.

4. Greirat's Second Outing, (Irythll Dungeon) 

Saved by Siegward :

  • To trigger his second scavenging quest, cross the bridge between the Catacombs and the Boreal Valley.
  • Send Greirat on his second outing - Before killing Pontiff Sulyvahn, after Greirat has returned from his first outing, which is giving Greirat Loretta's bone.
  • Get Siegward in Place - 1. Before the Pontiff Sulyvahn boss fight, even after lighting the Church of Yorshka and Distant Manor bonfires.   2. Which must be after speaking to Siegward at the fireplace just above the sewers in Irythll 3. Siegward must be given his Caterina armor, (See Siegward's questline) near the Cleansing Chapel bonfire. 3. Which is after helping Siegward kill the fire demon, just before the Road of Sacrifices bonfire.
  • Bug / Glitch : NG+ Remove Caterina set from your inventory to avoid glitches.  Patches' spawn points above Firelink Shrine can be problematic, and /or he may not rescue Greirat on his own.  Perhaps - In this case, give your armor set to Siegward and do NOT purchase the Catarina Set from Patches until Greirat is rescued.

Or, Saved by Patches :

  • You must send Greirat out to Irithyll and inform Patches of his destination before you defeat Pontiff Sulyvahn or he will cease to ask.
  • Of course, if you buy the Catarina Set, Patches won't have a disguise to rescue Greirat, dooming him.

Second Outing Failure Conditions :

  • On failure, Greirat's corpse and ashes will be in the sewer area underneath the kitch in Irythll.
  • Patches will not rescue Greirat - even if you send Greirat on his second outing after the Yorm the Giant boss fight, and Siegward has died.
  • Do NOT kill Alva the Spurned, who invades when embered - just before the Irithyll Dungeon Bonfire.
  • Do not proceed within Irythll Dungeon.  It has been reported that you may light that bonfire, if perhaps Alva the Spurned has not been killed.
  • Bug / Glitch : Remove Siegward's armor from your inventory before finding Siegward in the well, or encountering Patches in the Cathedral.  If Patches' spawn at the Cathedral of the Deep or Firelink Shrine are bugged and you can't purchase Siegward's armor - it might be possible to give Siegward the armor that you have.  If this succeeds, it has been reported that buying the armor again from Patches might fail the quest.
  • Unnecessary : It is certainly unnecessary to drink the Estus Soup next to Siegward when he is at the fireplace.  It may perhaps be a requirement to NOT drink it, somehow helping Greirat to survive.

Tried and Failed :

  • [UNCONFIRMED] As a fail safe, be sure to clear out the Sewer Centipede before proceeding to defeat Sulyvahn. Note : If Alva the Spurned has been killed, this does not seem to matter.

Player notes:

  • I gave Siegward his armour before doing the Catamcombs and sent Greirat to pillage once I had lit the Central Irithyll bonfire. I then beat the Old Demon King and found Greirat safe at Firelink. 
  • I sent Greirat out for pillage in Irythill after defeating Pontiff, then killed the fire demon with Siegward and opened the main door to trigger the well location. Went back to buy his armor for the quest line and Patches still asked about Greirat's whereabouts.

5. Greirat's Third Outing (Lothric Castle) :

Third Outing Success Criteria, Greirat Lives : 

  • Quest Possibly Bugged / Glitched: There is game audio of Greirat speaking of how Anri saves him in Lothric castle.

 Third Outing Tried and Failed :

  • Killed Yoel of Londor upon meeting, Leonhard, Londor Pale Shade invasions, and Yellowfinger Heysel.
  • Killed Patches in firelink shrine, given that he goes "hollow" in the Ringed City - and might kill Greirat.
  • Waited until after Twin Princes boss fight to send Greirat, still failed.

Player Notes :

He will request to leave for a third time to Lothric Castle. He will die if he goes; there is no known way to save him. Patches will ask where Greirat went, but this only causes Patches to disappear for a time. Patches will return later and add one Hidden Blessing to his shop inventory, while failing to save Greirat.

Greirat's Ashes can be found on the roof at the Grand Archives, after jumping down where you see a group of Corvians. Giving Greirat's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid will allow her to sell Exploding and Splintering Bolts, along with every other item he used to sell. Additionally, items which were sold by both NPCs (like Firebombs) are overwritten by Greirat's lower prices (50 souls for a Firebomb, instead of 100).

Greirat's Ashes will only unlock the wares that he was selling before he died.
Killing Greirat while both Patches and Greirat are in Firelink Shrine will make Patches hostile toward you.

Dialogue

 

First encounter (High Wall of Lothric)

"Ahh, you're no jailer are you? No, no, you're from far away.  And judging by the bell... You must be some of that unkindled ash.  Remarkable, if that's true, then i have a favour to ask.  Below the High Wall is a musty little town.  Not the home of any lord, just a very old settlement of Undead. An old woman, Loretta, lives there.  Please give her this ring.  I- I am not asking for charity.  In fa- in fact if you do this for me... I'll be sure to repay you in kind.  I-I may be a petty thief, but I've more wits than most royalty.  What do you say, then?"

[Refuse] "Yes, well, why should you? But if you change your mind, give me a shout, eh? I-I'm only a petty thief. I've nowhere else to go. Not like there's anything calling to me out there.. heh"

[After Refusing] "Oh, what have we here? Changed your mind perhaps? You deliver the ring, and I offer my co-operation. Hardly a shabby deal, hm?"

[Grant Request] "Very well. I humbly place my faith in you.  I am Greirat of the Undead Settlement, and I promise to assist you.  Give this ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall.  ...Do your part, and I'll do mine."

[Attacking him] "Cold piss, what the devil is it now?  I get caught once, and now this!  One bloody time! Curse the gods!"

[You die] "As they say,  "The cornered rat will lick the balls of a cat." "

[Killing him] "(Forgive me, mother.) Forgive me, dear..."

 

Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)

"Oh, hello, you're back.  And in one piece. Well, now it's time I do my part.  Whatever trinket you need, speak up.  Just don't ask me where I got them."

[Talk] "Do me a favour, and don't forget our promise.  Give the [this] ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall.  A nuisance, I know, but it'll help me tie up some loose ends."

Give Loretta's Bone

"Heavens, she was already dead...  Thank you. I-I'm not surprised, though.  Hmm, almost a relief, really.  You can keep the ring.  As, well, a little trinket of thanks, I suppose."

[Leave] "Goodbye, and stay safe.  Oh, this place is a bore. What good is thievery if you've nowhere to go?"

[Attacking him] "You're heading for the brink aren't you?  Well I won't let you drag me down!  En guarde, you crusty ash bastard!"

[You die] "Cold piss, why did it come to this..."

[Killing him] "(Cries) I've gone and run my course, haven't I?"

 

Pillage (Undead Settlement)

"Ah, there you are. I was thinking...  You know I'm a petty thief.  Well, perhaps I'll go on the prowl.  Everyone's dead or hollowed away anyway, right, so...  I might as well fetch some weapons or treasure for you.  Well, what do you say?"

[Refuse] "All right, fine and well.  If that's your wish I can only obey.  But, feel free to change your mind later.  I wouldn't want to lose my touch..."

[Talk] "What is it? Have you changed your mind?  I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."

[Send him to pillage] "Thank you. You will not be disappointed.  Greirat the Thief was once a well-known name.  Until I ended up rotting in a cell..."

[Leave] "Good-bye. I will leave for some time. So long for now.  Do stay safe, you hear? Or my efforts will have been for naught."

[Return] "Oh, hello, you've come at a good time.  It took some prowling, but I've finally made a score.  Go on, have a gander."

 

Pillage (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley)

"Ahh, hello, fine work, I say.  Discovering Irithyll in the Boreal Valley, all in a day's work.  If the tales are true, it is home to old moon-worshipping nobles, and should be packed with treasure.  What do you think? Shall I go and see what I can find?

[Refuse] "All right, fine and well.  If that is your wish, I can only obey.  But, feel free to change your mind later.  I hate to leave a city of nobles ripe for the picking..."

[Talk] "What is it? Changed your mind?  I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."

[Send him to pillage] "Mm, a fine choice!  I am greirat, the thief. What I bring back will be worthy of that name."

[Return] "Oh, then, we are both safe and sound.  Thank the gods for that. I don't like cutting things so close.  I might've died if it wasn't for that peculiar onion knight.  But in the end, it all paid off.  Take a good look. They're sure to be of some use."

 

Pillage (Lothric Castle)

"You know, I was thinking...  About leaving for another round of thieving.  There must be something of use in Lothric Castle.  I-I'm aware of the danger. That castle is a death trap.  Not a single man has returned from the castle unscathed, even back in the day.  But I don't want sit around and die a petty rat.  And I consider myself your friend."

[Refuse] "Right, fine. You're very thoughtful, you are.  But, if you change your mind, do speak up.  I meant every word of what I said."

[Talk] "Changed your mind?  I hope you do. I lived a petty rat, but would rather not die as one."

[Send him to pillage] "Thank you, for placing your trust in me.  Oh, don't you worry. I know Lothric like the back of my hand."

 

Trivia

  • Greirat is voiced by Stephane Cornicard, who also did the voice of Gavlan in Dark Souls 2.
  • The hat he is wearing is a Thrall Hood. It is said that people who wear the Thrall hood are either slaves or criminals.
  • When Patches takes residence in the Firelink Shrine he mentions that Greirat did him a good turn in Lothric Dungeon.
  • Selling him the Blue Tearstone Ring after giving him Loretta's Bone does not change his dialogue.
  • There was previously a typo in one of Greirat's dialogues. His sentence " I am Greirat of the Undead Settlement, and I promise to assist you." was previously missing a "t" in the word settlement, making it read "Setlement". This was fixed in a later patch.

      I kill Lothric Bros, went to roof in grand archives to pick up his ashes and his corpse was´t there. Don`t remember but i think that I send him twice from Firelink shrine. Is he steel alive and what is the trigger that returns him back? I need fire arrows :( .

        I left Lothric Bros and Soul of Cinder, send Greirat for first pillage, kill lothric, he return. Send him for the second pillage, inform patches the location, kill soul of cinder, he return. OFC, third pillage is 100% dead, no way to save.

          I was following the 'Have Patches save Greirat' portion since I was skipping onion bro, but just found Greirat dead in the sewers even though I told Patches where Greirat was, but no matter how many talks I went through with Patches, I never got an option to have Patches go save him even after I reloaded the area. The hell happened? And no I didn't enter the Irithyll Dungeons at all as I've just started Irithyll and got as far as the Distant Manor bonfire.

            The way I did it and succeeded: as soon as I was able to, I let greirat explore the settlement. he came back. I went and cleared the cathedral, then carthus, and I got to irithyll. I gave him permission to explore. I didn't talk to siegward (dunno if that's relevant) and I killed the pontiff. came back to firelink, he was alive. Hope ths helps

              The trigger for ruining the quest line seems to be the Pontiff Boss fight. I screwed up and went into Irithyll Dungeon, killed Aldia the Spurned, got the Flask Shard in the Mimic, and then realized my mistake and went to kill the Old Demon King. After that, Patches was back in Firelink giving his standard "I'd be dead if it weren't for that Onion Knight." speech.

              I recommend saving Old Demon King until after Greirat's quest is finished just in case it's necessary to advance his plot. Corpse-Rotten Tree can be used the same way.

                Somebody should really mention that if you talk to siegward in the kitchen he goes on and greirat dies. Guide told me to talk to him which is exactly opposite of what you should do.

                  Note: just entering Irythll Dungeon and getting the name up on the screen is enough for him to die during the second outing, even if the bonfire isn't lit and Alva the Spurned is alive, before you kill Pontiff Sulyvahn with Siegward in the right spot.

                    He died on my save even tho I told patches about him AND i hadn't bought the armor of him, I only lit the first bonfire in the dungeons the Distant manor one and then left. Do you need to kill the crawlers for him to survive ?

                      I have greirat on the second outing right now. I have given onion bro his armor in the well and met him in irithyll. I'm not sure what to do now in order to save greirat. (Pontiff is still alive and I haven't entered irithyll dungeon yet)

                        Should be noted that if you wait until Irithyll to send him on his first encursion it breaks the questline. Since he only returns after a boss fight, and he must be sent BEFORE Pontiff. If Pontiff is only boss you have access to, the questline is effectively broken. If you try to go for profaned capital it will jump Siegward to his cell so he cant save Greirat.

                          this is just one quick thing to ask if all the bosses are dealt with will this prevent me from compleating the questline or will it continue like normal without any boss killing?

                            The formatting on this page is atrocious. That "Saved by Seigward" section is especially bad. Whoever wrote this needs to learn that bullets are only necessary when you're listing things, and probably shouldn't be used as punctuation.

                              I always use same way :
                              1) meet Patches the dickhead in cathedral , bought armor and return it to onion bro (just use the souls after defeat the Deacons)
                              2) later , greet onion bro at Irithyll kitchen and clear the way to pontiff (don't go to dungeon)
                              3) go back to shrine and send Greirat to Irithyll
                              4) parry the***** out of pontiff
                              5) profit
                              PS) this strategy might cause*****injury

                                Can we trigger the Greirat's Lothric Castle event BEFORE the Irithyll event ?

                                  This is bullshit, i just tried to save him with Patches for the first time instead of making Siegward save him, which is what i usually do, and i just found him dead in the sewer.

                                  I told him to go pillage, reloaded Firelink, talked to Patches, told him where he went, did NOT buy any of the Siegward equipment which was still in the Cathedral's well, killed the Old Demon King, got to Irithyll's sewer and there he is. *****ing dead.

                                  I wish these sidequests were more clear about what to do in order to progress successfully.

                                  Never trying the Patches rescue again. *****ing game just killed one of my favorite characters.

                                    I thought I'd screwed up the second pillage. Here's what happened.

                                    I was in Ithyrill and talked my Onion Bro to sleep. Then I progressed through in the same session and killed Pontiff. Then I went back to Firelink to spend my souls and Greirat asked if I'd let him go. I said yes, and then came on here to see what was going to happen. Oh crap.

                                    But after some additional googling, it became clear that as long as I didn't progress further into Ithyrill and found another boss to kill, Greirat might return safely. So I broke sequence and took down the Dancer boss (with the help of summons, thank goodness). He returned safely, singing the praises of the Onion Knight.

                                    So it's possible to have beaten Pontiff and for Greirat to return safely from his second pillage, as long as the player doesn't do anything to make the Onion Knight shift on to the next part of his quest.

                                        So, after Greirat has been sent on his second pillage, and Siegward is in place to save him, how do you get him to come back? His ashes haven't appeared either, so he's not dead. Also, is it safe for me to kill Pontiff now?
